medal winner simon cho made a shocking admission. i tempered with a skate by a canadian skater, after being pressured to do so. >> reporter: he says his coach put him up to it, during the 2011 championships, using their mutual korean heritage to manipulate him. in the asian culture, when an elder asks you to do something or makes a request, it is very difficult to deny. >>> the coach's client tells nbc news he won't comment until after the hearing but today, the u.s. speed skating association said they couldn't prove the sabotage was the coach's idea. >> we don't believe there was sufficient evidence to conclude that coach jae su chun directed simon cho to tamper with the skates. >> reporter: olivier jean knew there was something wrong with his skates the first lap of the relay and was forced to withdraw. he used a tool to align the skates, and it could have been extremely dangerous. >> clearly they undermine the sport, so this is a tremendous black eye for the u.s. speed skating. >> reporter: this likely will trigger images of the skating championships in years past, when tonya hardi

drives the gym to get. many catholic groups are most notable in networks led by sister simone and the nuns on the bus have been vocal critics of the ryan budget which would cut spending of social services. republicans have been heavily influenced by the tea party movement in the past three years, and the tea party espouses of course that government should be far less responsible for providing the service. they believe that when the government provides social welfare it creates a culture of dependency among americans but i was struck that paul ryan use those words talk about welfare reform. so the american values survey asked americans whether they were more likely to agree that government policy and helping the poor served as a critical safety net or whether they create a culture of dependency where people are provided with too many handouts. so figure nine shows the percentage of americans were more likely to say that those policies create a culture of dependency. it's relatively few, only 32% of americans say social welfare policies create a culture of dependency. there is a
